Arriving in Mèthana seems like arriving in the Caribbean, then the smell of sulfur get into your nose and heaven becomes hell! Fortunately, a few hundred meters after the marina, the air return breathable and you find yourself in a spa town with an atmosphere of other times that gives it a strange glamour. And then there’s the volcano!
This is the image that you find in front of you coming out from the last turn before Methana. The turquoise waters of the thermal baths are those who mix in the sea creating this painterly effect.
Afterwards, on the left you will see the main spa center and the characteristic smell of sulfur becomes annoying. But it seems that these baths, known since ancient times, do wonders for various dermatological diseases.
We are 95 km south of Corinth, 50 km east of Epidaurus’ theater . The waterfront is lined with inns and hotels of all sizes, small restaurants and souvenir shops.
But everything has something very decadent, either because the average age of vacationers seem to be over 70, either because, given the structures, we would expect many more people on the street. The fact remains that at the end it leaves you with a positive impression.
Luckily there were no mosquitoes, so we could at least leave all windows wide open to get to sleep a little better, but still… it was HOT!
